never have I ever

Have you ever been in the middle of something and then realized, "oh shit.. things have gotten out of hand" ?

Because that happened to me last night, when I was applying lube to my sewing machine. but let's take a step back shall me. The real name of this story is, "why i haven't been blogging so much lately". As I have mentioned before, the loml and I are finally going to have matching halloween costumes. In previous years, we've been oddly matched: airline stewardess & russian maffia, buddhist monk & belly dancer, etc..

So this year, we're going as intergalactic militia, specifically John Crichton and Aeryn Sun from Farscape (or as I now think of it "the best series ever canceled" as said by the nameless douche who geek-talked his way through the entire soccer game last thursday. I had to change seats because of you!)

So I've been up to my elbows in pleather, making the niftiest Peacekeeper vest ever! Of course, the weird thing about sewing pleather is that you really have to make a lot of accomodations.. longer stitch length, maybe some stronger thread.. and then the lube for the needle. Because at some point the needle and thread just start buggering up and the whole thing goes to hell. I must have ruined several pieces of pleather before I caved. but before you start thinking I'm nuts, here is an example.

Now all I need is some pleather pants and a sling for my space shotgun.
